Please be careful about believing crisis info posts on Fakebook, Social Media and even mainline news sources: There are tons of hoaxes circulating. If there is no verifiable source provided with the info, while it may contain some degree of truth (as do all good lies) you should always have a healthy degree of scepticism. -Ed.


Spain reports 11,291 new coronavirus cases and 162 deaths:
The Madrid region continues to face the greatest pressure, with 21% of hospital beds occupied by Covid-19 patients, compared to the national average of 8.6%
The Spanish Health Ministry recorded 11,291 new coronavirus cases and an additional 162 deaths in its official report on Thursday. This brings the total death toll – which only includes those who died after a positive PCR test – to 30,405. Madrid accounted for more than a third (34%) of new Covid-19 cases recorded by Spain’s regions. The daily report did not include figures from the Murcia region, which for the second day in a row experienced “technical difficulties” when reporting its latest coronavirus statistics to the ministry. Catalonia reported the same problems on Tuesday. Full story: https://english.elpais.com/society/2020-09-18/spain-reports-11291-new-coronavirus-cases-and-162-deaths.html


Costa del Sol hotels close en masse with no reopening date on the horizon: Hoteliers predict that only 20 per cent of the Costa’s establishments will be open this winter, as many local icons close for the season for the first time ever. During this month last year 72% of the Costa’s hotel rooms were full, and with higher-spending tourists. This year the month’s occupancy is expected to be no more than 23%, according to the Costa del Sol hoteliers’ association, Aehcos.

UK entering second wave of coronavirus, Boris Johnson warns: Britain is entering a second wave of coronavirus, Boris Johnson has said as scientists expressed fears the death toll could be as high as in the first spike without a rapid change in public behaviour. The prime minister is prepared to impose sweeping nationwide measures to curb the spread of Covid-19, it is understood. About 13.5 million people in the UK – one in five – are already facing local lockdowns after the government introduced new measures in parts of the north-west, Yorkshire and the Midlands.
Speaking during a visit to Oxfordshire, Johnson said: “We are now seeing a second wave coming in. We’ve seen it in France, in Spain, across Europe. It’s been absolutely inevitable, I’m afraid, that we would see it in this country.” PHOTO:TWITTER
